Tinctures are any herb macerated in alcohol to extract their health supporting constituents. Alcohol allows the most effective extraction of plant properties while preserving the herbal preparation much longer than water-extraction methods.
While utilized for many purposes, tinctures are most often offered to support, nourish, and/or balance various aspects of our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Our tincture blends combine a variety of herbs to support your everyday needs. From building immunity to supporting your nervous system during moments of acute stress, tinctures offer a convenient, accessible, and unique way to integrate the health supporting power of herbs into your daily rituals. They travel well, dispense easily, and often provide a unique and enlivening flavor to bring you back to your senses when needed!
So why tinctures over powders or capsules? We prefer tinctures because they are easier to absorb and more bio-available than extracts which are processed through high-heat drying. We want our products to be as effective as possible. The effectiveness of any extract is the outcome of how much your body absorbs, not how much you take.
So how do we take our tinctures?
Starting small helps you find the sweet spot for your body. Some people need more, some need less. Taking tinctures many times throughout the day also gives you more opportunities to 'check in' with your body, remembering the reason you are taking these herbs, and bringing awareness to your wellness journey.
It can be a meditation, a moment to take a pause, to set an intention, or to pray.
For most tonic herbs, we tend to take around 5-15 drops (~1 dropperful) 3-5 times a day.
Other things to keep in mind:
Tinctures come in many forms. In our case we offer Tincture Blends, Bitters, and Mushroom Extracts. Give them a try for a month or two and let us know how they are supporting you on your health journey!
With infinite dropperfuls of love,
